This was the dilemma, I came home on a Friday night all set to go out or get a pizza, and there in the fridge staring me in the face was a packet of turkey cutlets with sold by date about to expire. There goes my plans right out the window! I have one recipe I love for turkey cutlet (breaded cheesy turkey) but it is a bit too time consuming for a Friday night. So I put together this little ditty, it is quick and tasty too.
1 packet of turkey cutlets
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup Wondra flour
1 tsp coriander
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 large orange (zest and juice)
1/4 cup Brandy (if you don’t have it you can use chicken stock or white wine)
Cooking the turkey breasts
Put a non stick pan on medium-high, add the butter and olive oil and allow the butter to melt. Clean and trim the turkey, then pat dry. Put the Wondra flour and the seasoning together in a bowl and whisk together. In a Gallon Ziploc Bag add the seasoned flour then put the turkey cutlets in the bag and coat.
Brown the cutlets in the pan on both sides, usually takes 3-4 minutes on the first side, then 2-3 minutes on the second. Add the zest, juice, and brandy and cook for 5 minutes or until the alcohol is cooked out and the turkey is white through the center (cut into the thickest cutlet to check before serving.)
